Single-Spindle Bar Feeder For CNC Fixed Headstock

The One is a single-spindle bar feeder for CNC fixed headstock and Swiss-type lathes. It is designed to offer flexibility, productivity and simplicity and synchronizes the bar pusher with the moving headstock, which eliminates any mechanical connection between them, using a linear encoder and a brushless motor. This bar feeder also eliminates the need of a lathe stock stop, thus reducing machining cycle time, according to the company.

The machine includes an automatic spring bushing inside the spindle and a fork centering device along the bar guide. This desgin allows a user to run a range of barstock diameter without replacing the bar guides. The bar feeder is available for 12-ft bar length and up to 1 5/8" in diameter.
